Study in the Scriptures: Matt Hartline

 
 
 
                 A Study in the Scriptures 
                      -with Pastor Matt

 

     l have been enjoying listening to Pastor Ed take you all through an introduction to John’s Rex elation. As I have said a couple of times on Wednesday nights, it is taking the place of my morning podcasts), and I am benefiting from it greatly. And, I hope you all are as well. In one of his introductory lectures the comment was made that if we were to compile the Early Church Father’s writings we actually have the majority of the New Testament. Isn’t that an amazing thing to think about? To think that God has stamped His revelation everywhere! It has been given and will be preserved for all time. My purpose in writing this article is to give you just a little idea of what that looks like. The Church Fathers prior to the Medieval Period can be broken upon into the Apostolic Fathers. Greek Fathers, Latin Fathers, and Syriac Fathers. The talk or classification of “Church Fathers” within Patristic studies usually stops around AD700, and begins with the theologians of the Medieval Period. Church History usually finds itself in four main eras: Patristic Era (AD100-600), Medieval Era (AD600-1500), Reformation Era (AD1500-1700), and Modern Era (ADl 700-present). What I want to show you are the texts that have been cited within the Apostolic Fathers. Much of liberal theology aims to tear down the Scriptures and cause a person to doubt its validity and preservation. Some of the arguments goes along these lines, “We can’t know what was written,” or, “We are too far removed from the Apostles to know what they wrote,” or, “We didn’t have the Bible until the Council of Nicaea in AD325.” Do any of these sound familiar? In this article I am only dealing within the writings of the Apostolic Fathers. Which are: The Epistle of Barnabas (AD70-l 35), The Didache (AD50-90), Clement of Rome (AD81-96), Ignatius (AD30-107), The Epistle of Polycarp (AD65-155), Shepherd of Hermas (AD90-lOO), and II Clement (AD95140). I am leaving out the writings of Mathetes (AD 130), Fragments of Papias (AD98-l l7), and Justin Martyr (AD110-165). So, here are the texts found in the first-century writings of the Apostolic Fathers:
